Great review! I have yet to see it, but have read Omnivore's Dilemma (as you know).

As with anything that challenges a lifestyle or habit, it's easy to feel overwhelmed with where to start if a change is what one decides is needed. Personally, I was most affected by information about egg farms, so I no longer buy eggs from the supermarket, instead getting them when available from a friend who has hens or buying them from true organic farms.

That's an excellent review Neil and I needed to read a good review on this movie to comprehend what I saw myself.
Unfortunately I get overwhelmed with these movies due to the animal cruelty scenes so I tend to miss the more important aspects, which you detailed very well.

I hope to be able to watch it again so I can look past the things that distracted me and understand the movie better.

Thanks Tony, Cameron - I have been talking about this film with friends at work, not trying to convince them to change their food habits, but just watch the film and get exposed to the info. I figure if everyone reacts the way I did, the whole country will have seen it by Spring! :)

Food, Inc is on the short list for consideration of Best Documentary for next year's Academy Award....and rightly so...
